§ 5. Mr. Hamling
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he will take to encourage men and women in the Services who are completing their terms of engagement and who have high educational and technical qualifications to apply for training as teachers.
§ Mr. Prentice
The opportunities open to suitably qualified mature men and women to train as teachers are made known to those about to leave the Services through the Regular Forces Resettlement Service. Information about teaching is published periodically in the Services Resettlement Bulletin, and liaison between my Department, the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Labour ensures that those responsible for advising Service men and women on their resettlement in civilian life are fully informed on the subject.
